Image result for book presentsTHE GIFT OF WORDS

 I would like you to find a poem, song lyrics, a saying, or a paragraph you like from a favorite book– something that speaks to you because of its message, its beauty, and its format.

I want you to copy it neatly onto a piece of paper, put it into a box, and wrap it. Be sure to include, before you wrap it, the name of the author, your name as the giver, and write, very briefly, why you chose the words you did.

Image result for book presentsWe will “exchange” these gifts and share the wonder of words.
